Minecraft Forge

Minecraft Forge is a library for Minecraft, which is the main library for most mods. By default, only commands and datapackages can add new features to the game, but with the help of the forge it is possible to modify the game with the help of third-party mods. Forge for mincraft gives mod developers almost limitless opportunities to change the game, they can add new blocks and mobs, items, measurements and much more.

Forge for Minecraft 1.14.4 is updated to version 28.1.26

How to install/update Minecraft Forge

To install Minecraft Forge, download the latest installer from http://files.minecraftforge.net (it uses an AdFly link, so see above for how to avoid getting fooled into downloading crapware or a virus), then run it, and let it install.

There are many tutorials on how to do this. Here are a few:

Once you have it installed, you have to run Minecraft once, select the Forge profile, and click Play once, to get it to create the mods folder.

Then, to install a mod, you download it to the Minecraft mods folder (see below), and then start Minecraft, choosing the Forge profile; installed mods are always active.

Finding the Minecraft mods folder

Before you can install a mod, you need to find your minecraft folder.

  • On Windows: do Start / Run / %appdata%, or type %appdata% into the location field of the Windows Explorer; then open Minecraft.
  • On Mac: click on the desktop, press Command+Shift+G, type ~/Library and press enter; then open ‘Application Support’ and finally ‘minecraft’.
  • On Linux: in a terminal window, type “xdg-open ~/.minecraft”… or if you like working at the commandline, “cd ~/.minecraft”.

Then inside that folder, you should see a folder named ‘mods’. (If you don’t see one, make sure you’ve installed Minecraft Forge already and started Minecraft again once.) That’s where you’ll put any mods you want to install.
